Welcome to "Course Name", this course will take part in a Direct Digital Access program with the CSM College Store. This service enables the CSM College Store to offer students direct access to the course materials your professor requires at the lowest price! The CSM College Store has implemented this program to save students as much money as possible.

What does this mean for you, the student? It means you have direct access to your digital course materials through myLearning, powered by Desire2Learn (D2L) Brightspace. Login to your myLearning course and follow the instructions within the course to access the digital materials. When you registered for this course, a fee was charged to your student account for this course material. If for some reason you decide you do not want to purchase these required materials from the CSM College Store, you can opt out of the program by clicking “OPT OUT.” If you opt out by the deadline, your student account will be credited. After the deadline, no refunds will be issued. This program aims to offer all students accessibility and affordability.

If you have any questions regarding the program, please email us at textbooks@csmd.edu. For technical assistance, please email our program partner RedShelf at help@redshelf.com We wish you great success in your studies.
